Social networking in Indonesia is beginning to rapidly expand. Indonesia’s first location-based social networking service, Yahoo! Koprol, is getting a significant upgrade with BBM6 integration.

“Mobile Internet adoption and social networking in Indonesia are growing at a remarkable pace and BBM6 integration was the right strategy for Yahoo!,” said Pontus Sonnerstedt, Yahoo Indonesia Country Manager. “Now, Indonesians can have a great social experience across multiple platforms and enjoy the flexibility of connecting with their contacts via one of the largest mobile social networks.”

Nearly 90% of Koprol users are in Indonesia. Having BBM6 integration was a clearly smart move for Yahoo. With the new BBM6 integration, users can chat through BBM with others nearby. You can also use your Koprol status to set as your BBM6 status and much more.
